Q. 123. Which is the second petition?
A. “Your kingdom come”;
that is, rule us so by Your Word and Spirit,
that we may submit ourselves more and more to You;
preserve and increase Your church;
destroy the works of the devil,
and all violence which would exalt itself against You;
and also all wicked counsels devised against Your Holy Word;
till the full perfection of Your kingdom takes place,
wherein You shalt be all in all.
